Siewers Lab

Verena Siewers












With the help of state-of-the-art synthetic and systems biology technologies, we engineer yeast cells for a vast variety of applications. This includes:

  • cell factories for the sustainable production of plant metabolites used as agrochemicals, biofuels, pharmaceuticals or nutraceuticals
  • efficient protein producers for the manufacturing of protein drugs
  • metabolite sensors to screen for efficient enzyme or pathway variants and to regulate metabolism
  • whole-cell biosensors for pathogen detection
